    Hi all,

    The scenario I have is one of my family has bought a HP laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium. When she bought it, she was told that she could upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium for a small fee, which apparently would cover the cost of the sending the disc out etc, but I'm not sure if that means the BIOS already has SLIC 2.1 OEM, so essentially I could upgrade for her.

    My question is, what is the easiest and best tool to use to check if the BIOS already has a valid HP OEM SLIC 2.1 ready to go?

    The laptop is a HP Compaq Presario CQ60.

    Any help is appreciated, Sansini :)

    as I told you in other thread, the latest bios does not contain SLIC 2.1 yet. Request to get it mod.

    CQ60 (Intel CPU) bios F.52A has SLIC 2.1

    Hello everyone,

    I own a Compaq CQ60-211ES bought last year so it came with Vista preinstalled. Some few weeks ago started looking into installing Windows 7 so checked the bios which was version F.3C. Unfortunately the Slic Dump Toolkit reported it as slic 2.0 so I either had to go with a loader or a modded bios neither of which I could be bothered with.

    Seeing that a similar version of my laptop was being sold now with Windows 7 preninstalled (so they must be fitted with slic 2.1) I went yesterday to HP.com and downloaded and installed a new bios version F.52A, run slic dump tk and voilĂ , it reports slic 2.1. I can install W7 now and use one of the OEM SLP product keys to activate it.

    I'm pretty sure the same thing happens with other more or less recent laptops from HP-Compaq, just update the BIOS check for Slic 2.1 and off you go.

    That fact shows me that some OEM's take liberties with SLIC2.1......also I do when I mod a bios.:D

    Nice gift for you!
